Let's Go Find Wroclaw Gnomes on a Delightful Trip to Poland

Go gnome hunting in Wrocław, Poland. Take a walk in Wrocław and discover Wroclaw gnomes. Find the gnomes of Wroclaw on a trip to Poland.
As you can tell from my previous posts, I found Wroclaw Poland to be an incredibly charming city.  My absolute favorite part about my trip was the opportunity to go gnome hunting.  

I learned from a colleague that there are over 100 dwarves/gnomes spread throughout the Wroclaw.  Originally, the gnomes were a symbol of resistance in the age of communism but have been revived in recent years to become a tourist attraction.  

The little statues that I'd noticed in earlier walks around town soon took on bigger significance.  I spent a few hours on Saturday morning exploring Old Town Wroclaw and hunting for gnomes.  I spotted more than 25 gnomes during that time.

The Wroclaw gnomes are quite small and not so easy to find.  In some cases, I walked by a gnome more than once without even noticing.  

Then, like magic, a gnome would appear.  Love it!  I've posted some of my favorites from my gnome hunt below.  

You can find a map of where the gnomes are located online or get a comprehensive map at the local tourist shops for the equivalent of a couple euro.
